Stop Check keeps Alachua County motorists in check
Drivers Beware…Click it or Ticket has returned. The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office set up a driver’s license spot check as part of the Click It or Ticket Program to check for valid licenses and for drinking and driving this past weekend. ASO Spokesman Art Forgey says the campaign has been effective in increasing seat belt usage in Alachua County in the past.
“It’s the single most important thing that you can do once you get in a vehicle. Statistically speaking, it’s one of those statistics that you can’t argue the safety on it,” he said.
Forgey hopes this year’s Click It or Ticket initiative will prove as effective as previous years.
